5 Alternative Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day

Mother's day gift ideas, Bullet journal, Blythe doll, Staedler, Unipin, a Kipling bag and Leuchtturn journal.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to share some of the things that are hanging out on my Amazon wish list.

I love Amazon for this feature because I can window shop without spending and I can share it with my other half when he’s unsure of what to get for special occasions like Mother’s Day, birthdays and anniversaries.

I’m not a typical girly girl, I never really have been. Don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate make-up palette’s and jewellery, but they’re not always on my ‘need it right now’ gift list.

Mother’s Day wish list

Ugg boots

I know I said I’m not a girly girl or woman (23 erm 33, 4 in April) and Ugg boots are seen as a woman’s wardrobe essential. These beauties aren’t like the usual soft boot, furry lined or knitted shoes that are commonly worn. They more closely resemble Timberland boots with a feminine twist. I love them!

Neo Blythe Orange and Spice

No girl is ever too old to own a doll, fact! Having a daughter, I know first hand that when asked to put the Barbie clothes on the doll, she’s going to be having her very own fashion show.

The Sylvanian families houses are set up as miniature versions of our dream homes and you can still throw the best teddy bears picnic.

Blythe dolls are the ultimate grown up girl dolls collection. I already own Bohemian Peace and would love to give her an Orange and Spice sister.


I am a bullet journal lover! If you’re not sure what that is then you can read all about it over on the creators’ site. Like most creative outlets, the original idea was conceived and the fans rolled with it and helped it evolve.

If your other half loves to keep diaries, journals or is a die-hard list writer then she’ll love a Luechtturm. They come in a variety of colours so you can pick her favourite and you’re in for a win.

Uni pin

If you’re going down the route of the Leuchtturm bullet journal then pens are the next part of the package. Uni pins are the ultimate grail of fine line pigment drawing pens. They come in a variety pack of different sizes and are great for outlining, Zentangling, doodling and dreaming.

Staedler triplus pastels

Every journalist with a bullet journal and a Unipin pen would be a complete package with Staedler Triplus Pastels. Colour coding to a bullet journal list maker is like ice-cream to warm chocolate brownies. The two just go together.

Kipling shoulder bag

I started this list with shoes, sandwiched it with bullet journals and now I’m wrapping it up with a bag. Kipling bags are well known, durable, fashionable, washable and perfect for carrying everything she needs. It will even fit her Leuchtturm, pens and pastels in there with her keys and phone.

If you decide to go all out and buy the lot, you my friend, have just purchased an all round winner of a Mother’s Day package. Not only have you shown that you recognise and appreciate everything she does, but you have also thought about the type of gifts she’d like.

I salute you and I’m completely jealous ( I may even send the link to this post to the other half.)

Ps. Don’t forget the Mother’s Day card.
